Local expert tips for hiring a car in Alice Springs

  • Fuel matters

    Avoid extra fees by returning your hire car with a full tank of fuel, and if exploring the greater Northern Territory, keep an eye on your fuel gauge and top up when passing through the region’s remote towns.

  • Watch your speed

    While it’s legal to drive at up to 130km/h on some stretches of highway in the Northern Territory, be aware of road trains and other large trucks, and take care to drive to the conditions.

  • Be prepared

    If travelling to the more remote areas of Northern Territory, make sure your hire car is equipped with a spare tyre and the necessary tools, and that you’re prepared with plenty of water.

  • Watch the weather

    If your trip to Alice Springs coincides with the end of the wet season, or there have been bushfires, check the road conditions before setting off. Ask locals about any road closures and plan your trip accordingly.

  • Watch out for wildlife

    Where possible, avoid driving after dark as wild animals, including buffalo and kangaroos, can be a hazard.
